Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ is Still on Course for a Full Theatrical Release


While Disney CEO Bob Chapek remains flexible about release strategies for movies between the big screen and the studio’s streaming service Disney+, he has made it clear that Marvel’s long-awaited feature Black Widow is still set to be a pure theatrical release as mentioned back at the company’s December investor day.

However, “we’ll be watching to see the reopening of theaters and consumer sentiment in terms of going back to theater,” said Chapek Thursday on the studio’s FYQ1 earnings call. Black Widow is currently scheduled to kick off summer on May 7. Should the pandemic quell by then, and New York City and Los Angeles reopen movie theaters, the Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh feature will be the first tentpole to re-ignite exhibition.
